Dana and Samuel are a young couple trying to conceive a child, but things are not going well. After a tense argument, Samuel is left alone in the kitchen when two people tumble out of his refrigerator. It turns out that their fridge does more than make ice and chill beer -- it's a time portal to Austria in the late 1800s. Government agencies get involved in the investigation and the president tries to take advantage of the portal to boost his flagging poll numbers, threatening to tear apart the space-time continuum. Renegade Theatre Experiment, the finest in South Bay alternative theater, explores love and babies as they test the theory of relativity in this new comedy. Learn More
